I am an Assistant Professor at QuTech and EEMCS, TU Delft, as well as an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.

We have PhD position openings in Quantum Computer Science at TU Delft. Interested applicants should apply here: QCS PhDs.

Previously, I was a postdoc researcher at TU Delft, where I worked with Prof. Stephanie Wehner. I received my PhD from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, where I worked in systems and networking. My advisor was Prof. Don Towsley. Lately, my research interests have been focused on the modelling and performance analysis of distributed quantum systems. I received my Master of Science in 2017 from UMass Amherst. I interned at Inria in Sophia Antipolis, France in Summer 2017. I received my Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences from the University of California at Berkeley. Previously, I have worked at the Argonne National Lab and the Computation Institute at the University of Chicago.

As an undergraduate, I worked with Prof. Vern Paxon on detecting traceroute traffic in tcpdump trace files using Bro, a network intrusion detection system. I interned at Cisco Systems twice during my undergraduate.

Here is my latest CV.
